The holiday season is upon us — where has the old year gone? During the last month-and-a-half, many of us have been gearing up for a busy few weeks. But, don’t let self-care fall by the wayside. Who has the time to get sick during the busiest time of the New Year? So, keep the following tips, along with select homeopathic remedies, in mind this holiday season — and, your body and mind will thank you for it.
Your chances of getting sick during stressful, or hectic, times, just as much on a vacation, will significantly decrease if you take time to prepare your body for the coming onslaught, or change of place. The simplest way to keep your health up, your stress down and resist infectious diseases is to increase your ‘vital force’ through consistent homeopathic constitutional treatment. Taking regular doses of ascending Q-potencies, or LM, potencies in the standard protocol can avoid the many antidotal factors of modern life.
It’s great for general health maintenance, and it’s what we, your homeopathic practitioners, practice on ourselves and our family members.
HOMEOPROPHYLAXIS FOR FLU
Thanksgiving, Hanukah and Christmas fall right in the middle of flu season. Go ahead and start your homeoprophylaxis routine [that’s another word for homeopathic immunisations] using either the Influenza Mix 30C, Anti Cold-n-Flu 30C or the H1N1 Nosode in 30C. Which one should I use? Experience will show you, which is best for you, most likely the Influenza Mix, or the Anti Cold-n-Flu will be best.
For maintenance/Prevention: Take it either one dose weekly every week of the flu season, or three doses per day for three days every month of the flu season. Start this as soon as possible, if you haven’t already.
Already getting sick: If you’re already feeling a cold coming on, take your chosen homeopathic defence remedy listed above every hour, increase your vitamin C with acerola intake to at least 2,000-3,000mg per day. Consider incorporating an Echinacea Angustifolia mother tincture [five drops daily in juice or water] into your daily remedy routine. You will also find it helpful to take the homeopathic that covers your specific symptoms of cold or flu…
You don’t have to go on a restrictive diet during the season of indulgence. In fact, this can set you up for stress, guilty feelings [if you fail], depression and feeling left out of the crowd.
Trust me, I know how ridiculous it sounds. When I was very chemically sensitive and my food sensitivities had just begun, I would feel like such an outsider. I harboured a little depression and grief when I couldn’t enjoy traditional favourites with my family. I still have some restrictions in my diet. But, after years of homeopathic treatment, not only did those restrictions lessen, but my negative and irrational emotions completely went away.
